REM was my first favorite band. my uncle was (and probably still is) a huge fan of theirs. he used to buy me their tapes for christmas. i've always attributed my current intense love of music to REM. they taught me how to love music. and i don't care what anyone says, i think he's still a very handsome man. obviously, when i was 9 years old i didn't know anything about his sexuality. and, honestly, i don't care if he's gay, straight or asexual. i think he's beautiful and brilliant.
around the same time i was falling in love with REM, my sister was knee-deep in her own romance with u2. i never really cared much for their music but i've always cared for their sexy, sexy drummer. he's a babe, ridiculous earrings or not.
who was your first celebrity crush? be honest, we're all friends here.
